Contradiction in Terms
A motif you often see in decorative works from the 50's and 60's is MODERN/PRIMITIVE. This vase is the prime example with a very literal reference to cave drawings. I love the joyful stick-man hunting his prey. This piece produced in the 50's is called "Hedenhös" and was designed by Mari Simmulson for Upsala Ekeby, Sweden.
